Come to Market; Roll up for Fairground attractions! See Apocalyptic Horsemen on Carnival mounts! Wander down avenues of naughty Pucks, seductive in the shrubbery... leaf through chapters of darkly dangerous Harlequins, Narcissi, Angel-winged lcarii, acrobats and Sorcerers!... Shield the eyes of innocents from the monstrous Minotaur, and maybe forego the spicy 'Fish Dish'!

Richard Wallace's beautifully composed, audaciously contorted figures are etched and chivvied into life on the canvas and imbued with feisty fun!... He has a mordant sense of humour, and the technique of conveying it brilliantly! - 2013

Curriculum Vitae

After training and working in Advertising and Graphic Design I was drawn toward painting and Fine Art. As a self-taught painter I first exhibited in Manchester City, England, and was awarded 'Young Artist Award' by the Manchester Academy of Fine Art, also twice exhibiting at Londons' Royal Academy. Later I was 'Artist in Residence' at Derby City Art Gallery, having been awarded the 'Silver Palette' First Prize.
